# dnscrypt-proxy configuration #
# #
##############################################
## This is an example configuration file.
## You should adjust it to your needs, and save it as "dnscrypt-proxy.toml"
##
## Online documentation is available here: https://dnscrypt.info/doc

## List of servers to use
##
## Servers from the "public-resolvers" source (see down below) can
## be viewed here: https://dnscrypt.info/public-servers
##
## If this line is commented, all registered servers matching the require_* filters
## will be used.
##
## The proxy will automatically pick the fastest, working servers from the list.
## Remove the leading # first to enable this; lines starting with # are ignored.
# server_names = ['scaleway-fr', 'google', 'yandex', 'cloudflare']
# server_names = ['cloudflare']
server_names = ['quad9-dnscrypt-ip4-filter-pri']
## List of local addresses and ports to listen to. Can be IPv4 and/or IPv6.
## Example with both IPv4 and IPv6:
## listen_addresses = ['127.0.0.1:53', '[::1]:53']
listen_addresses = ['127.0.0.1:53']
## Maximum number of simultaneous client connections to accept
max_clients = 250
## Switch to a different system user after listening sockets have been created.
## Note (1): this feature is currently unsupported on Windows.
## Note (2): this feature is not compatible with systemd socket activation.
## Note (3): when using -pidfile, the PID file directory must be writable by the new user
# user_name = 'nobody'
## Require servers (from static + remote sources) to satisfy specific properties
# Use servers reachable over IPv4
ipv4_servers = true
# Use servers reachable over IPv6 -- Do not enable if you don't have IPv6 connectivity

# Server must not log user queries (declarative)
require_nolog = true
# Server must not enforce its own blacklist (for parental control, ads blocking...)
require_nofilter = true
# Server names to avoid even if they match all criteria
disabled_server_names = []
## Always use TCP to connect to upstream servers.
## This can be useful if you need to route everything through Tor.
## Otherwise, leave this to `false`, as it doesn't improve security
## (dnscrypt-proxy will always encrypt everything even using UDP), and can
## only increase latency.
force_tcp = false
## SOCKS proxy
## Uncomment the following line to route all TCP connections to a local Tor node
## Tor doesn't support UDP, so set `force_tcp` to `true` as well.
# proxy = 'socks5://127.0.0.1:9050'
## HTTP/HTTPS proxy
## Only for DoH servers
# http_proxy = 'http://127.0.0.1:8888'
## How long a DNS query will wait for a response, in milliseconds.
## If you have a network with *a lot* of latency, you may need to
## increase this. Startup may be slower if you do so.
## Don't increase it too much. 10000 is the highest reasonable value.
timeout = 5000
## Keepalive for HTTP (HTTPS, HTTP/2) queries, in seconds
keepalive = 30
## Response for blocked queries. Options are `refused`, `hinfo` (default) or
## an IP response. To give an IP response, use the format `a:<IPv4>,aaaa:<IPv6>`.
## Using the `hinfo` option means that some responses will be lies.
## Unfortunately, the `hinfo` option appears to be required for Android 8+
# blocked_query_response = 'refused'
## Load-balancing strategy: 'p2' (default), 'ph', 'first' or 'random'
# lb_strategy = 'p2'
## Set to `true` to constantly try to estimate the latency of all the resolvers
## and adjust the load-balancing parameters accordingly, or to `false` to disable.
# lb_estimator = true
## Log level (0-6, default: 2 - 0 is very verbose, 6 only contains fatal errors)
# log_level = 2
## log file for the application
# log_file = 'dnscrypt-proxy.log'
## Use the system logger (syslog on Unix, Event Log on Windows)
# use_syslog = true
## Delay, in minutes, after which certificates are reloaded
cert_refresh_delay = 240
## DNSCrypt: Create a new, unique key for every single DNS query
## This may improve privacy but can also have a significant impact on CPU usage
## Only enable if you don't have a lot of network load
# dnscrypt_ephemeral_keys = false
## DoH: Disable TLS session tickets - increases privacy but also latency
# tls_disable_session_tickets = false
## DoH: Use a specific cipher suite instead of the server preference
## 49199 = TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256
## 49195 = TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256

## 4865 = TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256
## 4867 = TLS_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256
##
## On non-Intel CPUs such as MIPS routers and ARM systems (Android, Raspberry Pi...),
## the following suite improves performance.
## This may also help on Intel CPUs running 32-bit operating systems.
##
## Keep tls_cipher_suite empty if you have issues fetching sources or
## connecting to some DoH servers. Google and Cloudflare are fine with it.
# tls_cipher_suite = [52392, 49199]
## Fallback resolvers
## These are normal, non-encrypted DNS resolvers, that will be only used
## for one-shot queries when retrieving the initial resolvers list, and
## only if the system DNS configuration doesn't work.
## No user application queries will ever be leaked through these resolvers,
## and they will not be used after IP addresses of resolvers URLs have been found.
## They will never be used if lists have already been cached, and if stamps
## don't include host names without IP addresses.
## They will not be used if the configured system DNS works.
## Resolver supporting DNSSEC are recommended.
##
## People in China may need to use 114.114.114.114:53 here.
## Other popular options include 8.8.8.8 and 1.1.1.1.
##
## If more than one resolver are specified, they will be tried in sequence.
fallback_resolvers = ['9.9.9.9:53', '8.8.8.8:53']
## Always use the fallback resolver before the system DNS settings.
ignore_system_dns = true
## Maximum time (in seconds) to wait for network connectivity before
## initializing the proxy.
## Useful if the proxy is automatically started at boot, and network
## connectivity is not guaranteed to be immediately available.
## Use 0 to not test for connectivity at all (not recommended),
## and -1 to wait as much as possible.
netprobe_timeout = 60
## Address and port to try initializing a connection to, just to check
## if the network is up. It can be any address and any port, even if
## there is nothing answering these on the other side. Just don't use
## a local address, as the goal is to check for Internet connectivity.
## On Windows, a datagram with a single, nul byte will be sent, only
## when the system starts.
## On other operating systems, the connection will be initialized
## but nothing will be sent at all.
netprobe_address = '9.9.9.9:53'
## Offline mode - Do not use any remote encrypted servers.
## The proxy will remain fully functional to respond to queries that
## plugins can handle directly (forwarding, cloaking, ...)

## Additional data to attach to outgoing queries.
## These strings will be added as TXT records to queries.
## Do not use, except on servers explicitly asking for extra data
## to be present.

# Filters #
#########################
## Note: if you are using dnsmasq, disable the `dnssec` option in dnsmasq if you
## configure dnscrypt-proxy to do any kind of filtering (including the filters
## below and blacklists).
## But you can still choose resolvers that do DNSSEC validation.
## Immediately respond to IPv6-related queries with an empty response
## This makes things faster when there is no IPv6 connectivity, but can
## also cause reliability issues with some stub resolvers.
block_ipv6 = false

block_unqualified = true
## Immediately respond to queries for local zones instead of leaking them to
## upstream resolvers (always causing errors or timeouts).

## TTL for synthetic responses sent when a request has been blocked (due to
## IPv6 or blacklists).

###############################
# Cloaking rules #
###############################
## Cloaking returns a predefined address for a specific name.
## In addition to acting as a HOSTS file, it can also return the IP address
## of a different name. It will also do CNAME flattening.

# Local DoH server #
##################################
[local_doh]
## dnscrypt-proxy can act as a local DoH server. By doing so, web browsers
## requiring a direct connection to a DoH server in order to enable some
## features will enable these, without bypassing your DNS proxy.
## Addresses that the local DoH server should listen to
# listen_addresses = ['127.0.0.1:3000']
## Path of the DoH URL. This is not a file, but the part after the hostname
## in the URL. By convention, `/dns-query` is frequently chosen.
## For each `listen_address` the complete URL to access the server will be:
## `https://<listen_address><path>` (ex: `https://127.0.0.1/dns-query`)
# path = "/dns-query"
## Certificate file and key - Note that the certificate has to be trusted.
## See the documentation (wiki) for more information.
# cert_file = "localhost.pem"
# cert_key_file = "localhost.pem"

## Log client queries to a file
[query_log]

## Path to the query log file (absolute, or relative to the same directory as the config file)
## Non non-Windows systems, can be /dev/stdout to log to the standard output (and set log_files_max_size to 0)
# file = 'query.log'
## Query log format (currently supported: tsv and ltsv)

## Do not log these query types, to reduce verbosity. Keep empty to log everything.
# ignored_qtypes = ['DNSKEY', 'NS']
############################################
# Suspicious queries logging #
############################################
## Log queries for nonexistent zones
## These queries can reveal the presence of malware, broken/obsolete applications,
## and devices signaling their presence to 3rd parties.
[nx_log]

######################################################
# Pattern-based blocking (blacklists) #
######################################################
## Blacklists are made of one pattern per line. Example of valid patterns:
##
## example.com
## =example.com
## *sex*
## ads.*
## ads*.example.*
## ads*.example[0-9]*.com
##
## Example blacklist files can be found at https://download.dnscrypt.info/blacklists/
## A script to build blacklists from public feeds can be found in the
## `utils/generate-domains-blacklists` directory of the dnscrypt-proxy source code.
[blacklist]
## Path to the file of blocking rules (absolute, or relative to the same directory as the config file)
# blacklist_file = 'blacklist.txt'
## Optional path to a file logging blocked queries
# log_file = 'blocked.log'
## Optional log format: tsv or ltsv (default: tsv)
# log_format = 'tsv'
###########################################################
# Pattern-based IP blocking (IP blacklists) #
###########################################################
## IP blacklists are made of one pattern per line. Example of valid patterns:
##
## 127.*
## fe80:abcd:*
## 192.168.1.4
[ip_blacklist]
## Path to the file of blocking rules (absolute, or relative to the same directory as the config file)

## Optional path to a file logging blocked queries
# log_file = 'ip-blocked.log'
## Optional log format: tsv or ltsv (default: tsv)
# log_format = 'tsv'
######################################################
# Pattern-based whitelisting (blacklists bypass) #
######################################################
## Whitelists support the same patterns as blacklists
## If a name matches a whitelist entry, the corresponding session
## will bypass names and IP filters.
##
## Time-based rules are also supported to make some websites only accessible at specific times of the day.
[whitelist]
## Path to the file of whitelisting rules (absolute, or relative to the same directory as the config file)
# whitelist_file = 'whitelist.txt'
## Optional path to a file logging whitelisted queries

## Optional log format: tsv or ltsv (default: tsv)
# log_format = 'tsv'
##########################################
# Time access restrictions #
##########################################
## One or more weekly schedules can be defined here.
## Patterns in the name-based blocklist can optionally be followed with @schedule_name
## to apply the pattern 'schedule_name' only when it matches a time range of that schedule.
##
## For example, the following rule in a blacklist file:
## *.youtube.* @time-to-sleep
## would block access to YouTube only during the days, and period of the days
## define by the 'time-to-sleep' schedule.
##
## {after='21:00', before= '7:00'} matches 0:00-7:00 and 21:00-0:00
## {after= '9:00', before='18:00'} matches 9:00-18:00

# Servers #
#########################
## Remote lists of available servers
## Multiple sources can be used simultaneously, but every source
## requires a dedicated cache file.
##
## Refer to the documentation for URLs of public sources.
##
## A prefix can be prepended to server names in order to
## avoid collisions if different sources share the same for
## different servers. In that case, names listed in `server_names`
## must include the prefixes.
##
## If the `urls` property is missing, cache files and valid signatures
## must be already present; This doesn't prevent these cache files from
## expiring after `refresh_delay` hours.

[anonymized_dns]
## Routes are indirect ways to reach DNSCrypt servers.
##
## A route maps a server name ("server_name") to one or more relays that will be
## used to connect to that server.
##
## A relay can be specified as a DNS Stamp (either a relay stamp, or a
## DNSCrypt stamp), an IP:port, a hostname:port, or a server name.
##
## The following example routes "example-server-1" via `anon-example-1` or `anon-example-2`,
## and "example-server-2" via the relay whose relay DNS stamp
## is "sdns://gRIxMzcuNzQuMjIzLjIzNDo0NDM".
##
## !!! THESE ARE JUST EXAMPLES !!!
##
## Review the list of available relays from the "relays.md` file, and, for each
## server you want to use, define the relays you want connections to go through.
##
## Carefully choose relays and servers so that the are run by different entities.
##
## "server_name" can also be set to "*" to define a default route, but this is not
## recommended. if you do so, keep "server_names" short and distinct from relays.
# routes = [
# { server_name='example-server-1', via=['anon-example-1', 'anon-example-2'] },
# { server_name='example-server-2', via=['sdns://gRIxMzcuNzQuMjIzLjIzNDo0NDM'] }
# ]
## Optional, local, static list of additional servers
## Mostly useful for testing your own servers.
